VinciWorks’ new #MeToo-inspired sexual harassment training solution, MyStory: Harassment and Bullying at Work, has been shortlisted for “Best use of mobile learning” at the prestigious Learning Technologies Awards 2018.
MyStory directly applies the powerful lessons of the recent global outcry against sexual harassment in the workplace through innovative storytelling and a mobile-first design. Soon to be available to download on app stores for free, the course changes the paradigm of previously ineffective, legalistic harassment training by bringing real stories of harassment to life. The course connects users to a global movement and provides everyone with a safe platform to raise their voice against bullying and harassment at work.
VinciWorks, a small business that has punched far above its weight in the compliance arena for many years, has been shortlisted in the mobile learning category alongside major international brands including RBS, Air France, L’Oréal and Volvo. Finalists were selected by an independent judging panel of experts organised by the eLearning Network. The winners will be announced at a gala evening on 21 November at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London, UK.
The training is based on decades of research which has shown the most effective kind of training for sexual harassment is microlearning; short bursts of content where the learners are in control of what they experience and when. In this context, testimonials and stories of people who have experienced harassment clearly demonstrate what is unacceptable whilst not patronising those who have experienced such behaviour.
MyStory: Harassment and Bullying at Work is available in both UK and US versions. The US version complies with the New York State and New York City harassment training requirements as mandated by recent legislation. The training can be customised to include internal policies and procedures and a direct link to in-house or template harassment reporting portals.
